    Now I'm not sure if I can post this here ... But what's up with the editing feature at TPF.

    If I make a boo-boo I would like to be able to correct my mistake a second or two right after I make it. I would like to do it without the forum asking me why am I editing. This is a new feature that I hate. Before If I made a mistake I could just click, edit and fix what I wanted and It's as though I never made a mistake.

    I understand if I leave the thread. I understand if someone makes a post after me. Then request why I'm making changes.

    I hope someone out in TPF world understands what I'm saying.:D

    At least give us 30 seconds.:blushing: (I make a lot of boo-boo's)

    Also It's time for some new smilies.:D

    Thank you TPF:D

    You can still edit! I've been adding some pics to the Rutland meetup thread and it allows me to do it. And as LP said, you don't have to give a reason.

    As far as I can remember, it's always asked... And I rarely answer.

    ClarinetJWD... Before I could make a post and if I messed up my "smelling" I could click on edit right away and they wouldn't ask for a reason. Only if time has passed like a minute maybe they would ask for a reason. It's just annoying. I guess I have to check my "smelling" before the final submit. It's just a pain to make a error and when you try to correct it as soon as it happens that window pops up. Oh well.

    You get a window? I've never gotten a window, just a little box similar to a thread title box that says reason for editing:

    If you do it fast enough (within about 5 minutes), the 'last edited by' thing doesn't show up (unless you type something in the 'reason' box).




    I just added this and it doesn't show up VVV
